"I felt like the doctor was in a hurry and didn't really listen to what I was experiencing. It felt like he kind of just brushed it off like "no big deal" and prescribed pain killers to mask the pain I am in instead of wanting to find out the source of the problem. I have an unbelievably high pain tolerance (never shed a tear with multiple broken bones or kidney stones in the past), so if I am going to the doctor because I am in pain, it is serious. I think I should have been referred to a specialist for this issue because of the location of the problem and it being a specialized area and when I asked for that he said just take the pain killers and rest and did not refer me. I am 28 years old and should not being having the issue that I am, which makes me feel like it is serious and should be investigated by someone more qualified to do so from a specialty point. I have had another doctor from this group do this to me in the past, where they think they can just mask the problem or handle it without a specialist being involved and it turned into a disastrous situation and got worse because of that doctor's recommendation because they did not know how to properly treat the problem and refusal to refer me. When got the referral I needed from another doctor the specialist was angry I had not been referred sooner because of the condition I was in at that point and had become dangerous. After this most recent experience and the one I had in the past with a different doctor from this group, I am frustrated with the general attitude it seems like they both have had where they undermine the issue and refuse referrals when asked for them which have turned into threatening circumstances."
